Disney Channel style comedy with an adult flare
25 January 2008 | by aleusongSee all my reviews

This is a very weird show. It's The N's first stab at a comedy series instead of a teen drama. When you watch it at first you may go insane and think "wow the acting sucks, the writing sucks, everything about it sucks". I think if you watch it enough you learn to tolerate it. It's a comedy after all. It's not suppose to take itself seriously.

But it's really weird because the writing, the acting, and the characters themselves sound like something you would find on the Disney Channel except on this show you will usually hear a cuz word or two and yes plenty of sexual innuendo and liaison jokes meant for an older audience. Of course this is a Canadian series so it can easily attract a younger audience. I'm an American and this show would most likely get a 14 rating in the States as opposed to a PG rating in Canada.

There's all the usual cheesy fluff you would find in a usual romantic comedy sitcom...the predictable main character ship, the blond antagonist, the dorky best friend...etc etc. I watch the show cuz it's set in college. I guess it's not all that bad, but if you're not use to a comedy for any audience with a lot of fluff and a possibly annoying female lead, then proceed with caution.
